This was a 2 day trip through National Holidays coach trips. They did not name the hotel we would be staying in just saying a select hotel. On first sight of The Grand it looked like its name Grand however it was far from grand. I booked a family room for me my daughter and 2 grandkids which i wasnt... More

It's horrible , smelly , tired and most of all DIRTY! I'm not joking have a look at the pictures. This hotel compares to some of the worse Russians hotels I have been to. I don't know how they manage to keep it open. No telephone , no internet, nothing ! Just a huge building completely abandoned to itself. There... More

I was a solo traveller up for the cricket, staying Fri to Mon. I had two rooms because I booked the Sunday separately from Fri/Sat. First was an interior room and would have been OK except it was really hot. Second claimed to have a window, which it had but not my definition of a window, being heavily frosted non-opening...

After reading the reviews here, I felt I needed to reply. Myself partner and daughter will be visiting the grand on Sunday for family holiday, this will be our third visit and have never had cause to complain. I feel people want five star treatment for less. I find some of the comments very trivial e.g noisey seagulls! This is... More

Firstly , this place when built must have been mind blowing. It has loads of history and a lot of character. Nowadays it has got quite run down in places, but they are doing it up room by room. The huge central lobby is fab fun for people watching and grabbing an evening drink. Our room has seen better days... More

My boyfriend had booked the dinner, bed & breakfast offer via Groupon & surprised me with this the night before we set off. It's probably a good thing as I never had the time to read any reviews before setting off! I've stayed in Scarborough before but not this hotel. We parked in the Palm Springs car park around the...

We stayed for just one night having planned to go to the cricket during the day. Cricket rained off but we went for our stay anyway. £55 for double room, dinner breakfast and a bottle of wine was great value, room was clean and bed comfortable and we had a lovely sea view. Food was ok, reasonable choice. However at... More

I stayed here recently in an interior room, which I would not recommend to anyone (young or old). There was absolutely no air whatsoever in the room, only a fan to use to cool down the room. Not suitable at all for more than a day's stay. A very dark and creepy room when the lights are not on, not... More
